Career[edit]

Stripes[edit]

After moving from Fayetteville, North Carolina, fresh from High Point University, creative R&B crooner Steven A. Clark moved to Miami, Florida to explore his musical ambitions that eventually created this 8-song LP "Stripes." "Stripes" is a "movement towards a distinctive and immersive preview of R&B, reminiscent of other innovative R&B artists Frank Ocean and The Weeknd."[1]

LATE[edit]

LATE, Steven A. Clark's debut release after signing with Secretly Canadian, is a 3-song EP mostly self written and self-produced. The album is just the beginning for Clark, with soul-searching stories told throughout each track in a generous pop/R&B vision. The album includes track "The Lonely Roller," the title of his highly anticipated newly released debut full-length album on Secretly Canadian.[2]

The Lonely Roller[edit]

Following the success of his 3 track EP "LATE," Steven A. Clark released his first full-length album on the Secretly Canadian roster, "The Lonely Roller" in 2015. An intimate, indie-pop-R&B record, Steven A. Clark's "The Lonely Roller" includes tracks that incorporate both personal, emotional stories with fresh rhythms and pulsing synthesizers. The album shows his struggles in his musical journey and promises creative potential in a new wave of honest, verse R&B. Zane Lowe from Beats 1, SPIN magazine along with other sources have praised the album, specifically tracks "Not You," "Can't Have," and "Just Ride," and the stories they tell. Steven A. Clark is currently on tour with Sinkane promoting his new album.[3]

Musical Style[edit]

Steven A. Clark's musical style has been described as a mix of indie-pop and intimate, verse R&B. Noisey describes track "Not You" off of his debut LP with Secretly Canadian as "relaxed and effortless, sounding similar to Frank Ocean-meets-pop, while channeling some universal themes of love lost." Clark himself calls himself a "flawed character."[4] "The Lonely Roller" tells emotional, tragic love stories from Clark's own personal life, and is a creative, interesting new force in the world of R&B and indie pop.
